July 23rd, 2009

Interesting article with links from Ilya Grigorik about Tokyo Cabinet, Tokyo Tyrant (remote network access to the DB, via a rest_client p.ex.) and the “magnifique” Lua programming language, integrated for the ease of creation of user _designed functions into the server. A question I asked is the ability, or lack, of dinamically feed the server with extensions, without the need for restarts (updates, etc).

Not to miss this article too: Tokyo Cabinet: Beyond Key-Value Store

Tokyo Cabinet starts here with a nice presentation from its creator, another Japanese developer Mikio Hirabayashi.

Ruby, Perl, Python et_al bindings available.
